Beauty That’s More Than Skin Deep

Retaining wall installations can look nice from the front but if you don’t pay serious attention to what goes on behind and below, you could be in for a nasty surprise. A poorly built wall can separate, lean, or even topple causing massive property damage. All because it wasn’t built correctly or the proper drainage system isn’t installed behind it!

California Retaining Wall Law

If your new retaining wall is less than 4’ tall then a permit is not required. If the wall is more then 4’ tall a city or county building permit along with approved plans are needed. We will help you in obtaining an engineer and also assist you in obtaining the proper city or county building permits needed.

Dear Mark,

This review is for your customers. Don’t wait until your foundation cracks to install a French Drain around your home and foundation. To repair the crack in my foundation cost us $128k a fraction of what the French Drain actually cost us. So people if you have water coming under your home or through your foundation, call Mark at Universal and have him install a French Drain.



Dear Mark,

Thanks for installing the French Drain.  I never knew a Foundation Drain was really a French Drain. I was really scared when I saw white foam growing out of my foundation in my garage. When my husband was alive he always took care of everything for me so I’m glad I met you. Tell the crew they did a great job.



Please tell the crew they did an amazing job installing the French Drain around my foundation. For the first time in years during the last rain we didn’t have water pouring in under our house.
